What I Wore // Bright as a Bumble Bee

I'm trying my best to bring some color into my dark and neutral wardrobe.  Every few years I look at my closet and it is all brights, so then the next few years I work towards toning down the color and then all of a sudden my closet is full of only black, white, grey, and neutrals.  Right now it is in the black, white, grey and neutrals zone.  And as much as I love my neutral tones, I need to spice it up at least a little!  So while Modcloth was having their super 70% off sale, I grabbed this yellow coat and a red skirt.  I really dig this coat.  I was thinking that it might not work super well with a curvy figure but I was thankfully wrong.  It is nice and elongating and fits just perfectly!  It has a hint of military styling with the brass buttons down the front but for the most part stays heavily in the girly zone.  Score.  I also am in loooove with my new ring from Beginning Boutique.  So badass.  And I've been wearing these shoes from Blowfish shoes just about everyday since they arrived on my doorstep.

Very cute outfit!

Also I haven't clicked through to your site in awhile, but I love the new look! It's a wonderful monochromatic color scheme and use of repetitive elements (can you tell I've been reading my graphic design homework today?). ;P

That coat looks great on you and those leggings are so bad a**! It's probably fun to have a bright yellow coat on grey winter days!
